George Garzone, native son of Boston, learned to play saxophone in back of a pizza parlor from his uncle Rocco, a swing-era musician who made a career move from swinging eighth notes to slinging dough. Garzone would stay close to home, continuing his education at the Berklee College of Music. After a brief stint with Tom Jones, Garzone returned to Berklee as a teacher, gradually becoming the most hallowed of saxophone gurus, mentoring future stars Mark Turner, Donny McCaslin, Joshua Redman and Branford Marsalis. Another Garzone disciple is drummer Anthony Fung, who moved on from Berklee to Los Angeles, winning a coveted spot in the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. Fung brings his former master out to California for some unfamiliar experiences, such as West Coast jazz, 80-degree April weather and gluten-free pizza.
